    Default Stainless Steel Repair

    I picked up a side job from work about fixing a drawer for them. I am a welding student looking for practice so this is good. It is a ss drawer that pulls out and it is supposed to have a back plate stop so the wheel stops at that point. I'm going to have to cut out about a 3/4" or 1" piece of ss and weld it on the end. Problem is it being so thin (16/18 gauge) I would like some opinions on what type of wire I'd need. .023 .030 .035? CAM01542.jpg

    You know you're a welder when... You miss your court date because you stood outside the courthouse looking at the welds on the handrails.

    My point was that we need more info before we can give him the best advice..
    the stuff could be paper thin or maybe 1/8th inch... as it stands.. we have no way of knowing..

    BTW... .023 308 SS is readily available..

    But he gave us a picture
    You are right and the bad part is all of the tacks/weld are on the outside of the corner. Which over time and pulling/slamming the drawer out to the stops it will just break off again...Bob

    He could always shorten the pull of the drawer by an inch with a block welded or riveted in. It might last longer.-Meltedmetal
